This latest case study is from Phil who was looking to install a new large wooden shed in his garden. Before the installation there was just grass in the corner of his garden which you can see on the image below. Phil didn’t want to use any hard landscaping techniques that would not be permeable so decided to search around for a suitable product that was easy to install, permeable and could be relocated if needs be. Read on to see what product Phil decided to use:
- Being able to hold up to 420 tonnes per square metre
- Being 80% open structure and fully permeable
- Lightweight & easy to install with a simple slot and peg system
- UV & Weather Resistant
Phil was so impressed with the base that he ordered enough Plastic Shed Base Panels to create his foundation the same day. His order was processed the next day and arrived at his home just a few working days later via pallet delivery.
On top of the membrane Phil began laying his 16ft x 11ft Plastic Shed Base. Starting in one corner and laying one panel at a time, he simply connected each piece of the base together as he went along using the specially designed slot and peg system. He repeated this until the entire area was covered. Once the base was laid, Phil back filled the entire base was gravel (around 8kg of gravel is required to fill each panel) and began working on installing wooden sleepers to surround the newly installed base.
Finally, with the base complete, Phil’s shed could be installed and then start being used! You can see the finished project in the photos below and we all agree it looks fantastic!
Phil and his wife are very pleased with their new shed and fully recycled plastic base. They enjoyed the process so much they tweeted throughout the project with updates of how the installation was going!
A big thank you to them both for using our plastic shed base and for then sharing the photos of their installation with us. Should you have any photos to share or have questions regarding our bases or other products then please do not hesitate to contact us.
